Using Flash in Street photography is quite difficult or sometimes uncomfortable, but it gives very satisfying results. After I bought "Ricoh GR Digital", I wanted to make use of the in-built flash in some difficult lighting situations. I also wanted to try flash in night people photography, especially longer exposure pictures.
Flash can separate the main subject(s) from background. It gives more pleasing results with deep contrast & high saturation.
How I do it ?
Flash can be on camera (in build or external) or off camera flash. I have used my Ricoh GR with in-built flash.
Set the flash sync to either first (front) curtain or rear (second) curtain depends on the requirement.
Shoot with longer exposure to capture some parts of the picture in detail.
Look for more dynamic scene to get more aesthetically pleasing picture.
